“’It is important for men to pray,’ said Mom. ‘To submit themselves to Christ.’ Everyone must bend his or her will, but this desire to clean up one’s own spiritual mess seems a more masculine failing. From a distance, the danger is easy to see: ‘It’s my problem, I’ll deal with it,’ leading to, ‘It’s my soul, I’ll sanctify it.’ No, you won’t” – from Matthew Lickona’s, “Swimming with Scapulars”
